I had difficulty translating many terms... including "peak oil" itself.

People often make the mistake of thinking that proficiency in a language means that translation comes easy. It's certainly easier, but translation is itself a separate skill.

I bet it's tricky . . . the temptation must be there to simply transliterate the English phrase, or just use it directly.

I was looking at your translation . . . what does it mean, literally? I was guessing at 'Energy After The Oil Peak' . . . ?

egni == energy

olew == oil

y tu hwnt == beyond

I'm open to suggestions about correcting my translation! Smile
